The truth is that Governor Blanco refused entry of about 500 relief vehicles filled with supplies and food for about a week into Louisiana. They had to rush generators into the holding area to refrigerate the perishable food item. My cousin, who was part of the coordinating force, was furious they did this to embarrass President Bush. Zer0 knows very well what happened and chooses to stick it to Bush to remind people that his mismanagement is the source of all our problems.
**********PEOPLE WERE DYING*************
A REAL man would have said Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead! W. send in the Marines. Jeb send in the State Police. Cowards, both of them. They had the power to save lives, and they failed to act, PERIOD.
Were they more concerned for the dying or their political careers? Shame on them both.
Thank God for the U. S. Coast Guard! I don't know if they also had any legal impediments or not, but I doubt it would have mattered. SAVING LIVES is what they do.
Harsh? Yes, but TRUTH is paramount.
